Hospitality workers at the Best Western in Sudbury met on May 15, 2017, to review the details on a new four-year agreement.

The ratified contract includes a new wage progression grid to keep rates above any minimum wage introduced by the province. Members will receive wage increases totalling 4% over the contract term.

Members achieved a paid sick day for full-time employees with more than one year of service and a reduced sunset clause of 18 months, down from 24. Vacation entitlement improves to provide four weeks’ paid vacation after 10 years of service instead of the previous 15 years required.
